***UPDATE****
Beta 12,685
Progesterone 25
E2 508


Good Morning! I had my 6 week u/s today and we have two healthy HB now. Baby A was 116 HB and baby B (smaller one) had a 114 HB. I go back in two weeks.

And some really good news...........I get to stop PIO! YIPEE! I have to take 3 Crinone instead of two now instead.

DH went with me today and he is over the moon happy. It really feels real to him now. He thanked the RE for all his hard work and hugged and kissed me a 100 times!





We will probably tell DS pretty soon even though we are still super early.

What a journey - as I was checking out I was flashing back 2 years ago when I first walked into the office and all of the panic and desperate we were in. I know we are not even close to a take home babies yet but at least for now it feels a little more promising then ever before.

Crazy enough to try all over again for a second together baby! Hoping for a much less wild ride this time!




TTC with PCOS for 5 very long years. Annovulatory cycles. Multiple doctors. Different meds. One horrible loss. And then one wonderful success, born 2/18/14.

I never knew until that moment how badly it could hurt to lose something you never really had. - Missed Miscarriage at 10 weeks - 3/26/13
